The fundamental underlying philosophy is that all training is core training. Without a fully functioning core, efficient movement is not possible. The core is involved in all movement as a major
factor in control of movement. Currently core training
is the buzzword in training. We need…

The following is from my blog at www.zachdechant.wordpress.com.
Orthopedic surgeons know what they're talking about when it comes to the body. . . . . .sometimes!?!? While I value a Doctor's opinion when it comes to assessing and diagnosing joint, and tissue injuries I don't often value their opinion on sports performance.Continue

While it’s not an exercise with direct specificity to running or any sport in general (and while a host of factors will affect the type of stress the lower leg has to endure), what’s your general take on a bit of direct dorsiflexion work with something like a D.A.R.D.?…

Hamstring pain and tightness is a common complaint in the running world, as such, today I hope to shed a little bit of insight into the chronic hamstring dysfunction.
If your hamstring is acutely injured and swelling, pain, and bruising are present, then what I am about to say is not going to be the best idea. In such a scenario, you’d surely benefit from some rest
and a few visits with a skilled sports medicine professional. That
said, if you are able to run…

Barefoot running has become an increasingly popular in the past several years as more and more examples find themselves falling into the popular media. So what is the deal? Is there any credence to the
Yesterday we gained an elementary knowledge of the foot and ankle’s anatomy. Today, you’ll take home a comparison of mechanics in barefoot subjects and those who wear shoes.
Before we begin, it would be prudent to define a few things. The…Continue

I got this comment on yesterday’s post, and thought that it would make an outstanding blog for today.
What I do know that might interest you involves stress fractures with military recruits in the Army. Stress fractures are one type of injury that has a huge impact on recruits in the Army. To be
able to predict stress fracture would be a very good thing. A physical
therapist I know who did some work on attempting to predict stress
fractures found something…
I hear this question often, and it perplexes me every time.
When you look at the sport of distance running, the average high school cross country runner has an injury risk of 33-47% over the course of the season. There is evidence showing that military recruits
have up to a 75% likelihood of injury in the first ten weeks of basic
training, which includes a great deal of running. The majority of
these injuries are the result of repetitive stress, and, in my…

With more and more runners finally seeing the benefit of training beyond the trails and are doing more resistance based and movement based exercise, a common question is how should one place resistance
training sessions in relationship to their running sessions.
Such a question has led to the development of a lot of discussion on “consolidation” of training stressors. Much of this discussion and advice has been based off of discussion/ideas from the
sprint or field…
